Toyota Announces Recall
Feb. 3, 2016—Toyota Motors Sales U.S.A. recalled about 320,000 vehicles on Tuesday from the 2003–06 model years for an airbag-related defect, according to a report by Automotive News.
The recall includes the 2003–06 Toyota Land Cruiser, 2004–06 4Runner, 2005–06 Tundra, 2005–06 Sequoia, 2003–06 Lexus LX 470 and 2004–06 Lexus GX 470.
The side airbags on these vehicles deploy from the room during some crashes.
